good thing i have to restrain myself...  
Dear Jamie Stewart,
I like you, do you like me? Check one:

i can't stop listening to The Air Force. like, at all. it's just playing constantly. Xiu Xiu day and night.

does it make me a bad person that i think this album is so good that i want to listen to it while having lots of hot sex?

i think it might.
Mood: bad bad good good bad bad
Music: Xiu Xiu - Bishop, CA

I don't think so. It is the best album ever made.

I don't think music's doing its job if it doesn't illicit some sort of emotional and/or physical response from the listener.

In this case, Jaime Stewart is playing the role once held by Morrisey (at least to many).

I was disappointed with the last two Xiu Xiu album so I passed on asking for a promo for The Air Force. I'm hearing good things which makes me wonder if I shouln't have passed. Perhaps a download is in order once I'm feeling better.

it's there if you want it. no use praising it to people who can't hear it!

i also must say, i agree that music should roust your senses, but i don't think many people get hot and sexy listening to Jamie Stewart singing about...well, the things Jamie Stewart sings about. I remember reading an article about Xiu Xiu that said emotional input into music is good, but someone who was singing songs that sounded like he was vomitting all over himself wasn't appealing. while i disagree with the diagnosis of Xiu Xiu's sound, i can also see where "more normal" people are coming from on that one.

Thanks for the link. I'll definitely snatch it.

My gal finds "Spiders" by Wilco to be very sexual. She says the contained beat in the verses that explode during the choruses is like a couple's passion being built and built and built and then finally unleashed. I just view it as a really rocking kraut-prog song.
